From YorkMix.

 

‘It will be for adults, for children, for hipsters, academics, foodies, style seekers and history buffs.’

So says Lotte Inch, the curator of York’s newest festival – Bloom!

Launched on Tuesday (October 31), and set to run for four days next July, Bloom! celebrates the 250th anniversary of the Ancient Society of York Florists, the oldest florists’ society still in existence in the world.

It will showcase everything about flowers, plants, fruit and veg. Expect York to be a riot of colour and fun.

The city’s parks and allotments will be taking part, along with gardeners, historians, pubs and restaurants – while the society’s annual show will come to Parliament Street for the first time.
